On January 12th, 2024, The King Center is rallying educators, students, educational institutions and learning organizations across the world to participate in our Beloved Community Teach-In. This worldwide initiative aims to engage people of all ages and backgrounds to learn about the enduring legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Coretta Scott King. Participants will discover how we can work collectively to carry on the Kings’ mission of creating the Beloved Community – a global society founded on justice, equal opportunity and love of one’s fellow human beings. This teach-in represents a chance for people everywhere to gain inspiration from studying the example of the Kings while also determining their own role in advancing their inclusive vision for humanity. The King Center hopes classrooms and centers of learning across the globe will take part in this empowering day of discussion, reflection and action.
“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.”
– Martin Luther King, Jr.
Martin Luther King, Jr. described the “Beloved Community” as a society where “caring and compassion drive political policies that support the worldwide elimination of poverty and hunger and all forms of bigotry and violence. At its core, the ‘Beloved Community’ is an engine of reconciliation.”
Join The King Center and educational institutions and organizations around the globe for the 2024 Beloved Community Teach-In.
